Well yesterday was just all-around stellar. I was able to take the day off work, so Chris and I zipped out to Canmore late Saturday evening - and we made it in time for a short soak in the hot tub - how's our luck!
On Sunday morning, after setting an alarm with the intent of getting our arses out of bed to watch the Canada/Sweden Olympic hockey game, we dozed until about 8:00am. Then, after checking up on the game via the internet and seeing the happy happy, joy joy, gold-medal celebration (Yeah Canada!!), we rushed out to Sunshine.
|10 gold medals - I'm proud to be Canadian!|
Rushing was totally unnecessary. I don't think there were even a hundred cars in the parking lot when we arrived. Now, Olympic closing ceremony day could have had something to do with it, or perhaps it was the fact that it was -25C.... Brrrrrr.... Whatever the reason, we ended up having the hill almost to ourselves!
|No wind, but cold enough to frost-nip my nose!|
|The fun starts here!|
So while it was chilly, the great snow conditions and lack of crowds more than made up for it.
Today is the first day of my first official set of two weeks off, now that I've returned to shiftwork. I have a couple of meetings to attend and one OT shift booked, but other than that, I have no schedule for the next 14 days! Love it! Love my life!!
